Concerned about Bitcoin security? Try this

It happened again. Last week, hackers stole 4,700 Bitcoins (over $80 million at today’s price) from mining marketplace NiceHash.

(The company pairs up people with spare computing power with others who are willing to pay to use that capacity to mine Bitcoin-- and then announced they would reimburse users who lost money from the hack.)

On top of that, last month hackers stole $31 million of another cryptocurrency called Tether.

But those[...] Click here to continue reading

The best tax incentive in the world

In a move almost destined to prove that laws and policies have absolutely zero meaning, the European Union released a list of “tax havens” last week… with a massive, giant, highly conspicuous omission.

The blacklist contains the names of the usual suspects-- Panama, United Arab Emirates, etc., along with a few additions like Mongolia and Marshall Islands.

But, again, conspicuously missing from this list is far and away the biggest tax haven in[...] Click here to continue reading

Think people got rich from Bitcoin? We haven’t seen anything yet.

Recently a group of archaeologists and anthropologists published a really interesting, comprehensive study of prehistoric civilizations and their sources in wealth.

It turns out that the most prosperous people and civilizations across ancient history-- and I’m talking 10,000+ years ago before any recorded history-- were those who harnessed new technologies to become more productive.

Back then it was all about agriculture.

And while it all seems so simple and obvious to us[...] Click here to continue reading

Important Update; Why you should want a second passport

My colleague, Sean Goldsmith, just returned from a tour of the Caribbean.

He met with several local governments about their ‘citizenship by investment’ programs – a way to receive a passport by donating money or investing in local businesses or real estate.

If you have the means, this is probably the quickest and easiest way to obtain a second citizenship.

We’re exploring ways for Sovereign Man readers to get a special deal[...] Click here to continue reading

Saxo Bank predicts Bitcoin collapse to $1,000 in 2018

It’s that time of year again-- the time when everyone seems to be channeling his or her inner Nostradamus, peering into the crystal ball, and making predictions about what we’re going to see next year.

There’s a great quote that’s often mis-attributed to Mark Twain: “Predictions are hard, especially about the future.”

(The source of the quote is actually an old Danish proverb… though like a number of witty sayings, Twain somehow manages[...] Click here to continue reading

A young foreigner’s first impressions of America

Last weekend while I was in Denver, I had the opportunity to speak with a young man from the Netherlands who was attending our charity event.

It was his first trip to the United States, and I’m always interested to hear people’s first impressions.

He told me he was really overwhelmed with the size and scale of everything. China is about the only other country in the world that does everything as big[...] Click here to continue reading

A second passport is much cheaper than ever before

While I was off at an annual charity event over the last several days, a few members of my team were dispatched through the Caribbean to meet with government officials at various island nations about their passport programs.

These programs are known as economic citizenship programs, and they allow a person to obtain official citizenship, along with a passport, by donating money or making a financial investment in the country.

One of my[...] Click here to continue reading

In case you missed Bitcoin’s epic rise…

Over the weekend in Denver, my friends and I hosted an annual charity event-- a sort of business and investment bootcamp that ended with around $100,000 worth of toys being donated to kids in low-income families.

It was a lot of fun, and I really want to thank the dozens and dozens of our Total Access members who came and participated.

At the bootcamp portion on Friday, we covered a number of different[...] Click here to continue reading

The government is coming for your Bitcoin

The same day Bitcoin cracked its all-time high above $11,000, the government dealt its first blow to the crypto world…

On Wednesday, a federal judge in San Francisco ordered the popular Bitcoin exchange, Coinbase, to provide the IRS with information on over 14,000 account holders.

The taxman noticed that only 800-900 people reported gains related to Bitcoin in each of the years between 2013-2015. It seemed unusual given Bitcoin’s meteoric rise.

So[...] Click here to continue reading

How to gain permanent residency in Mexico without leaving home

As a world traveler and investor, I always try to find markets where there’s a huge difference between the ACTUAL risk and the PERCEIVED risk.
And this risk assessment applies not only to investing, but also to entire countries.

Mexico is a great example.

Sure, Mexico has some serious problems. Crime. Gangs. Drugs. Corruption. Tensions with the US over illegal immigration and American jobs.

But did you know that more Americans applied[...] Click here to continue reading
